Executive Hotel Le Soleil’s signature restaurant, Copper Chimney Indian Grill & Bar, located in downtown Vancouver’s financial district, is kicking off the summer season with fresh menus, a new Bread Bar concept, one of the city’s most extensive gin & tonic cocktail selections and an accompanying Indian Happy Hour.
These exciting changes come hot on the heels of the restaurant’s 2018 Vancouver Readers’ Choice Award in the “Downtown Indian Food” category hosted by the Vancouver Courier.

The Copper Chimney’s new menus continue to reflect an ongoing commitment to authentically prepared contemporary Indian comfort foods made in-house from scratch using family recipes, hand-ground exotic spices, fresh BC ingredients and the use of two tandoor (clay) ovens. The extensive, yet simple, menus pair classic Indian dishes with more western- influenced menu items with a few fun twists. There are also gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian options.
Lunch is a favourite with the rushed downtown business crowd and this is where the two Tandoor ovens really shine as simple grilled meats, fish and breads cook swiftly. The Daily Tiffin (an ancient Indian design) is a popular takeout option that offers curries packed in an environmentally reusable metal container that guests can return to have filled with different daily offerings accompanied by naan bread, salad and rice for only $9.
The Bread Bar, offered at lunch and dinner, is a selection of fresh authentically-made flavoured naan breads and kulchas (stuffed breads or “Indian pizza”) cooked to perfection in the tandoor ovens. At dinner, the tandoor ovens impart a unique flavour to grilled meat, fish and chicken, while braised dishes such as the Bombay Braised Beef Short Ribs or Duck Korma are cooked slowly in their own juices.
Indian Happy Hour at Copper Chimney is destined to be as fun and tasty as it is unique to Vancouver with menu items featuring an Indian-twist on classic dishes. From handmade samosas, Indian pizza, lamb meatballs or Bombay short rib sliders to squash fritters with tamarind dipping sauce and poutine creatively topped with butter chicken.
Copper Chimney’s new gin bar just might offer one of the city’s most extensive selections of gin & tonics and gin-based cocktails. To kick off the season, the bar will initially introduce 18 local and international gins, a selection of six flavoured tonics (using complementary Indian spices) along with condiments and natural flavours.
